Off-center, in glassblowing vocabulary, refers to a shape displaced from its axis. In other words, it is a fault to be remedied. By allowing glass to spontaneously wrinkle, drip, collapse, wave, and fold, Edison Zapata creates functional and decorative pieces that challenge the established conventions of glass and design.
Edison graduated with an MFA from Tama Art University, Tokyo, in 2007. He strives to approach “making” with naivety and experimental abandon.
